Jonathan Gottschall Quotes: Putting Gloves On The Fighters Was A

Putting Gloves On The Fighters Was A Symbolic Change That Suggested That We Were Now Making It A Civilized Sport, And It Was No Longer This Crazy Gladiatorial Throwback To Ancient Rome. It's Even In Our Language: If You Want To Get Serious And Violent, What Do You Do? You "take The Gloves Off." Bare-fisted Is Supposedly A Much More Dangerous Way To Hit Someone. But We've Got It Completely Backward. The Glove Is A Weapon. It Massively Accentuates The Ability Of The Fist To Do Harm.
